Working in a vet clinic, I see a lot of animals come through with some pretty epic names. Examples:

Dr. Pancake (cat)
Mixtape (cat)
Optimus Prime (Tibetan mastiff)
Lucius Vorenus (mixed breed dog)
Bruce Wayne (tuxedo cat)

We also see some where it's obvious the person did NOT take their last name into consideration when naming their pets. We use an animal's first and last name together over the intercom, but sometimes we just can't bring ourselves to do it.

What are the best/funniest pet names you've seen?

My friend had a dog named Ravioli (Rav). I liked it.

My hamster's name is Vladimir, because she's a 'syrian hamster' (ehh, I thought she was a SERBIAN hamster. That would make sense).

I have a guinea pig called Vladimir. I called him that because I got him at Hallowe'en and his long hair makes him look like he's wearing a black cape.

When I worked at a vet clinic, we had a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Ruffles. Because, as the old commercial says, Ruffles have ridges.

My sister in law had a dog named Elwood - and besides the fact that he was superawesome I always loved that name.

I also like Ramirez, especially for dogs.

I wish I wrote down all the cool names I saw when I worked at a vet! The only few I remember were Neato the cat and Macaroni the lab (not too unique).

Someone on the PPK has a dog named Party, I can never remember who, but I will never forget that awesome pet name.

That was B_A_D! I've always thought that was one of the best dog names ever.

Jordanpattern posted a link to a petfinder of a dog named Pot Pie. I think the best names are names that make you laugh when you imagine people saying them in anger. "GOD DAMNIT POT PIE, YOU ATE MY SOCKS" hiiiilarious

In our house, the best names are the nicknames for the two of the cats who came to us already named.

CJ (for Citation Jet, don't ask) is white and grey but his skin is super pink so we call him, naturally, Mr. Pink.
Solomon is an orange tabby purring, drooling, loving machine so we call him Orange Droolius. that's my favorite.

my mother in law has a little pug named muffin. we feel bad for her. muffin!

my mom has the best names for her pets.
I grew up with a black cocker spaniel named Dude
Another named Milady
a buff colored one named Bo Jangles
there is now a sweet little golden colored mutt at their house named Corona
(they don't even drink)

and now she has cats as well, Bounce, Captain Crash, and The Beauty Queen

we had a cat who came to us named Table. the story was that, as a kitten, he lived with a bunch of big dogs and always hung out up on top of furniture. weird name, but he was so Table that we could never change it.

We have a tuxedo kitty whose eyes were alarmingly blue when we took her in at five weeks and I wanted to name her Sinatra as Frank Sinatra had just passed away, but I was vetoed and she's been Coda ever since.

sorry. i'm babbling. CJ (aka Mr. Pink) is at the vet with some serious issues and I'm using the ppk as a distraction technique.

I know someone who had a cat named Chairman Meow. I think that the best name ever for a cat!

I wanted to rescue a tuxedo cat named "Mr Darcy" it fit him so well!

I think my favorite names working at the Vet office were Senor Toenails and Bunchkin, which is what happens when your sock slides down and bunches up in the toe of your shoe, according to the owner. I forget what other ones I liked... Now I get compliments at the Vet's office for Monchichi, Atticus, and Sir Didymus. Well, also confusion "How do you say that? Mawn-CHEE-chee?"

I know someone whose cat is named Bodyslam, but what makes it even better is that the cat is nicknamed ______bumps (fill in the blank depending on the situation). For instance, when he kills a mouse, his name is murderbumps!

My rat is Plumcot, and I sadly don't get to claim credit for that awesome name because her previous owner named her. It gets people confused, though. "Plumcut? Plumcock?" Uh... No.

I was going to name the next bunny we got in Edward Hopper. I thought it was great (bunny! hop!), but no one at my work had ever heard of Edward Hopper. Then when we finally got a bunny in, I totally forgot about that and named him David Bowie.

I love animals named after food, and I really want to name an animal "Spudclump" now.
